Lovina was patient, kind and funny. She was always telling stories and making everyone laugh. She never saw a baby that she didn’t want to hold. She raised 11 of her own children and owned and operated a daycare. We are almost certain the children of Heaven were waiting to welcome her with a hug. She enjoyed camping with her family and the Weekend Wanderers, taking tour bus trips throughout the USA and playing cards. She was a hard worker and volunteered for the VFW, Senior Center, and her church. Although diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, she was able to fool most people with her wonderful sense of humor. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her. VISITATION begins Friday, 3pm at Beyer Funeral Home in Neligh, NE, with family receiving friends 6pm to 8pm at the mortuary. SERVICES Saturday, 1pm, First Congregational United Church of Christ in Neligh. Interment, Neligh Cemetery. Memorials may be directed to the family for planting trees in Lovina’s memory at the care centers where she lived in her last years.
